Funny part is during normal operations the machine does it's job quite
well! They have few users and small data. Nonetheless it's retiring at
the end of the month and the customer is moving their system to
iInTheCloud. Machines this tiny usually do not pay to keep these days.
FYI these sort of machines do PTFs FAR better when PTFs are loaded from
physical tape or Optical because at least the read part is not done to
the insufficient quantity of disk arms.

I always wonder who is selling these configs...

YMMV of course. I know one poor soul that used an image catalog on a Power5 520 with two drives mirrored no cache and it took like 35 hours.
